Darren Aronofsky Unhappy About "Fountain" DVD

by | June 1, 2007 | Comments

If you bought the "Fountain" DVD and you were disappointed at the lack of a commentary track, be patient: Darren Aronofsky is cooking something up.

Aronofsky blogs his displeasure with the DVD process on "The Fountain" by saying "Everything at the studio was a struggle. For instance, they didn’t want to do a commentary track cause they felt it wouldn’t help sales. I didn’t have it in me to fight anymore. Whatever."

But he promises to record a downloadable track that you can play as a traditional commentary track. And he also plans to knock on a few doors at Criterion: "I got a lot of extras in my bag so who know maybe if you all write to criterion they’ll get interested (suggest the fountain as a title: mulvaney@criterion.com). They’ve been into pi and requiem but because the first run of dvd’s had so many extras they didn’t know what else they could add. but the fountain…"

So there you go, Fountain fans. A piece of good news and a (polite) email to write.
